Gripping Beast Carolingian Cavalry

    Below are the photos of some Gripping Beast figures posting for sale. I have also included a comparison pic next to some Artizan Design Carolingians for those interested
how they relate to each other in style as well as size. I did use some LBMS transfers
with these in addition to hand painted shields (In general I prefer hand painted but
for ease used a few) and went with standard colors. Carolingians were noted for a
preference of scarlet leggings...both white and blue were common tunic colors with
the tunics edged in a contrasting color. Other colors such as yellow, ochre, red
as well as browns and creams were noted. These figures have the closed hands that
have to be drilled which I really like as they give a firm grasp of spear retention from
coming loose. Note: the figures are not based...only mounted for pics they will be detached
before sending.
